Mixed Movement Arts Classes
Move the Momentum Way & Uncover your physical potential.
Our approach to movement education is multi-layered, building, and navigating the vehicle in motion alike. In our classes we focus on 3 pillars: body, movement skills, and communication, Journeying through different layers and spheres we explore our physical potential and move from individual bodies to a moving community.
We’ll shift your mindset towards simplicity & playfulness of physical practice, while expanding your physical freedom, body longevity, and performance, with a strong focus on how to stay injury-free and if injured how to recover faster.
Because we strongly believe movement is for everyone our classes are catered to all levels! Moving step by step and covering the whole range our practice is made accessible for beginners while challenging warriors to dive deeper into their practice.
Foundation – Building the Vehicle
Foundation practice is the first step for every Momentum student. To become a good mover, we must understand the body (vehicle) we live in. The Foundation class is designed to build a strong, adaptable, and resilient vehicle so you’re prepared for the challenging demands of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (or any other practice, if any). During this class, we are educating and conditioning the body’s main motor skill mechanisms which will increase one’s physical capacity and the physical potential for movement skill learning. Movement is a physical language and the Foundation practices will equip us with the necessary vocabulary and comprehension to speak it.
Movement skills – Navigating the Vehicle
Movement Skills are the second step in our movement education. Once we’re aware of our physical potential we can start to practice the necessary motor skills to gain the freedom to play. We study efficient movement mechanics and how the body organizes itself in motion. This understanding will lead to a much greater capacity to absorb new movement knowledge and increase the longevity of our vehicle. When we know how to navigate our body across all spheres we create the potential for better communication with our environment and the people in it.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a Martial Art System with the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger, heavier assailant by using proper technique, leverage, ground fighting, and then applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the opponent. The beauty of BJJ lies in its application of physical laws of weight distribution and leverage empowering small and weak people to defeat bigger and stronger opponents. Regarded as human chess the possibilities to use the body and movement patterns are endless. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a true discipline where physical intelligence, strength, mobility, awareness, sensitivity, emotional stability, and determination is developed. The fighter will use every limb of his body to solve the problem he faces. BJJ students of the sport gain a deep understanding of the working and limits of the human body, benefit from greatly increased physical fitness, problem-solving ability, extraordinary physical intelligence, self-knowledge of their own body and mind, and a deeper, social connection and awareness.
